SEVEN STOREY MOUNTAIN: At the Poles: CD

Phoenix, Arizona produced this punchy, indie post punk band. They remind of the ‘90s-era stuff like Trenchmouth, Nation Of Ulysses (a bit), minus the spazzed-out vocals, and

with more solid driving tendencies like Jesus Lizard. Although this isn’t quite up to par with those bands, they definitely lean in that direction. It’s good to see that post punk is alive and well today, harnessing the intensity we all grew up with.  –buttertooth (Thick)
